In the shop of a towering mall
I entered to buy a pair of shoes and some socks
Salesman welcomed me with broad smile
And showed me the shoes of several design.
He showed me a good courtesy
And offered me a fancy chair to sit
I was pleased to see his behavior
And didn't bother to give price whatever he said.
How happy I was to hear it
When he offered me the warranty of three months!
It wasn't sufficient enough
He escorted me till entrance.
But it didn't take me long
To visit the shop once more.
My shoes got torn soon
And reached the shop with my shoes.
He investigated the shoes carefully,
heaved a sigh and then announced confidently
"Sir, shoes got torn so easily
And for this we are sorry"
But you didn't follow instructions well
See our term and condition yourself.
I was shocked to hear it
and came out angrily.
When I saw a cobbler under the shade
And shoes hanging on the nail.
He saw me with hopeful eyes
and kept shoes near by me.
He neither offered me a fancy chair to sit
nor any word of courtesy
But he assured me the quality.
I took the shoes of less price
and shoes lasted me for a long time.
Whenever I crossed from the towering mall
I see the people swarm from all around.
They produce low quality
But offer it with false smile.
The cobbler near the road side
With the shoes of good quality
gente nature with truthful word
and always expecting someone to arrive at his shop.
